    You are working as a Systems Administrator for a medical device manufacturer which has recently adopted a hybrid cloud infrastructure. They need to establish a dedicated connection between their on-premises network and their AWS VPC. In the next couple of weeks, they will migrate their applications and move their data from their on-premises network to AWS, which is why they need a more consistent network experience than Internet-based connections.

    Which of the following options would you implement for this scenario?

    A. Set up a VPN Connection

    B. Set up a Direct Connect connection

    C. Set up a VPC peering

    D. Set up an AWS VPN CloudHub

    So — the question states that they are going live in a couple of weeks. In the real world, I would implement a VPN since it would be extremely unlikely that a Direct Connect could be provisioned and set up that quickly. Now, I would order the Direct Connect but that could take months…

    I understand that the keywords here are “dedicated connection”, “more consistent network experience than internet-based connections” — I also considered “couple of weeks” to be key. I felt that B would be impossible in the timeline given so went with A. Thoughts? Would the actual exam have a question like this with this short of a timeline?

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting your question. A VPN could not be used in this scenario since it is not a “dedicated” connection (since it passes through the public Internet), doesn’t provide a consistent network experience and more importantly, it is an Internet-based connection (IPSec).

    A Direct Connect connection can be implemented in a couple of weeks. It can only take up to 72 hours for AWS to review your request and provision a port for your connection. You can expedite the process of cross-connect set up with an APN Partner or your service provider.

    Please refer to the following:

    Thank you! In all fairness, it took our team months to get a direct connect up and running, and I think that’s a more typical experience — that said, I understand the answer.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for sharing that JJ.

    I understand that there are situations that it may take months to get it up and running. It also depends on your network provider. It also various from your geographical location.

    For example, if you are establishing an AWS Direct Connect connection within the US, the setup time is faster. There are some network providers, such as Equinix, that can expedite this process.

    Check out this demo of establishing a Direct Connect connection using the Equinix Cloud Exchange – ECX Fabric Portal:
